I don't need money, gold or need to be rich. I only need enough money to alive. And there are 3 things that can make me happy. The first thing is family. I feel so fun when I play and talk with them. Especially my older brother and my younger brother, they are so humorous. And the second thing that can make me happy is when I play with animals like: rabbit, cat, hamster and parrot,... They make me feel makes me feel so comforted when I’m sad while i play with them. The last thing is nature. I feel peace and fun when I am in forest, river, ocean,..
